You built your house

You built your house

on land borrowed from time,

salt and earth mixed with tears

to form the mortar, walls erected

from posted letters of longing,

the roof a sky full of recollections

recorded during a lifetime of travel.

When asked for your address

you handed them a business card:

The House of the Absent

The Street between Love and Death

A Stranger’s Night Asking Who am I?

There is no history in poetry, merely

the context of when the moment

gave forth to your lines recounting

how you finally arrived home.
